I went to a house show last night, and it was the first time I had ever been to anything like this. I walked into the backyard of the house and this guy and his wife had everyone singing along with them. At first I didn’t want to sing along, but the man playing the guitar called me out, so I had no choice. After I started to sing I saw my friends start to sing with me.
I felt that if you were there, no matter what, you were having a good time now, because they wouldn’t let you not enjoy yourself.
I have been to all kinds of shows in my life, but I feel that this is what a show should be like. Forget thousands and thousands of people: It was about connecting with the people who come to see you and making everyone understand why you do what you do. This band’s name is Destroy Nate Allen and they were nice enough to give me one of there CDs. The best part about it was not that the music was good but the show was free for anyone to come and enjoy.
I can only speak for myself, but I know that I took more from this show than a few free CDs. I know now that it isn’t about making money from a performance as long as someone took something positive away from what you had to say. I would just like to say thank you to Destroy Nate Allen, and I wish you to the best of luck with your marriage. You were great people with a great message.
